I used a measuring cup and still had trouble making them all the same size!
Set aside 1/4 cup of the seedless raspberry jam. Warm the rest in the microwave, and stir to make soft.

Poke a hole in the center of each cupcake being careful not to go all the way through. I used the stem of a spoon.

Put the softened jam in your cake decorating bag with a tip, insert into the cupcake, and squeeze out about a  teaspoonful of jam into each cupcake.

Scrape off any excess on top.
Mix the leftover 1/4 cup of jam with the 16 oz of frosting.

I used my Kitchen Aid to mix the two, and the frosting mixture got a little soft, so I put it in the refrigerator for a little while to firm up a bit.  Then I frosted my cupcakes. The frosting consistency was slightly softer than regular butter cream frosting, but it was delicious!

I frosted some with the decorating bag…

and some with a spatula.  I had some pretty liners for my picture, but forgot about them till the cupcakes were all eaten!
